2019 was another record-breaking, game-changing year for ASCAP members. Their music evolved in magnificent ways, connecting, inspiring, lifting and healing us as only music can.

The global ASCAP family was responsible for #1 songs on 29 separate Billboard year-end charts. Across the genre spectrum, they earned music’s highest honors. They won Grammys and Latin Grammys, Oscars and Golden Globes, Tonys and Emmys, World Soundtrack Awards and American Music Awards, BET Awards and CMA Awards, the Pulitzer Prize and the Grawemeyer Prize. They were all over Variety's Hitmakers ceremony and Screen Music Summit. They were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the National Recording Registry. They were honored for their activism through music, and were recognized for inventing popular music. They topped critics’ lists and showed their Pride.

Congratulations to ASCAP’s 2019 Billboard chart-topping songwriters - and to all of our 735,000 songwriter, composer and music publisher members - for giving us something to sing about.
